the best part was to use the opera costume and the makeup.

Loved it! The theater is quite small which gives great view of the show regardless of where you sit. We really enjoyed the diversity of the performances. From singers, acrobats, musiciens, puppets, and of course the changing faces, it has it all. Even the comic play was really funny, though we did not understand it fully since it was in Chinese, but that tells how good the actors were. It was interesting to see that the majority of the customers were Chinese, which confirmed the traditional characters of the show - not just a touristy event. Tea is provided through the evening and we munched on the provided snacks of various beans. Both my husband and I had a blast and we recommend it to anyone visiting in Chengdu.

I decided to take the VIP option on this tour which included either an ear grooming, Chinese massage or make up/dress up option. We opted for the Chinese massage, which was an interesting massage.
The environment was unique and enchanting and we were served our tea on arrival.
The show itself was for an hour and a half but the time seemed to fly by.
It was very entertaining and combined face changing, opera, music, tricks, a clever show with some Chinese slap stick. My favourite part was the face changing. I was truly impressed.
A nice evening of entertainment.
